Windows 7: Screen capture

03 Dec 2009   #21

Windows 7 Professional

Is there a tool that will make multiple captures, so you don't have to Control-V after every single one?

Maybe, but press Print Screen on your keyboard and paste into an app like Paint. Easy if you don't want to use the snipping tool.

I fully agree, rsvr85.

At least Snipping tool should provide a quick option to directly export the capture to paint if a further edition is required. To accomplish this procedure you have to copy it, to open paint and to paste it there. Not a big deal but it's the typical annoying thing that leads you to consider other software capable to do both tasks. A frequent procedure, by the way.
No, you don't have to copy it. When you make a snip it is directly placed in the clipboard. To edit a snip with Paint is really that easy: make a snip, press CTRL+V in Paint and it's there. You don't even have to save the snip before pasting it to any application.
Ok, I see. Thank you for the tip, Kari.
However, I keep in my point that to add, say, a contextual mouse option to send it to paint -and to open paint if it isn't- would be easy and a quick way to link both accessories so that to match the features other programs for this matter have in one.

Ctrl-Print Screen and Alt-Prt Scn do the window capture, but Irfanview is exceptionally simple for paste-crop-copy-resize-resample functions.
For the Irfanview users grabbing screen shots ...
Attached is a "Paste" shortcut that will open Irfanview .. and Paste the Screen Shot .. in one easy click

Paste32 is for 32 bit systems ... and ... Paste64 is for 64 bit systems
